Embellished Easter Eggs

I lied on my Weight Watchers list.
I put down that I had three eggs . . .
but they were Cadbury chocolate eggs.

MFT Lisa Johnson Embellished Eggs

Yeah, Weight Watchers loves me. I cheat all the time, which is why they continue to collect money from me every month . . .

But, I think even Weight Watchers would agree that these eggs are safe – and even up town. (Love that herringbone egg.)

My Favorite Things Teaser Time

It's day one of the My Favorite Things (MFT) Teasers – our peaks at the newest stamps and dies. Today, we're featuring Lisa Johnson's latest designs: Embellished Eggs, Spring Backgrounds and the coordinating Die-namics, Easter Elements.

MFT Die-Namics Easter Elements

I had so much fun with these new toys.

  • I stamped the larger eggs from the Embellished Eggs set with Watermark Ink and heat embossed with two different embossing powders (white and a chunky, vintage rose with gold speckles). Then I cut the eggs out with the Easter Elements Die-namics.
  • I stamped the green grass with the herringbone background from Spring Background set with a Watermark Ink for just a little soft pattern.
  • I stamped the flowers from the Spring Background set with Kraft ink onto Kraft paper for a tone-on-tone look.

I used the sketch from the Guest Designer contest going on now. Check out the forum for details on how you can win over $200 in stamp sets and Die-namics.
